Seattle Kraken name, logo unveiled as fans sound

Seattle - Seattle - NHL Seattle has officially announced the name of their local franchise: the team will be known as the Seattle Kraken.

Team leaders announced Thursday in the newly named Climate Pledge Zone at the Seattle Center that the Kraken game will begin in late 2021. Upon announcing the team name, the leaders also unveiled the Kraken logo and colors.

Kraken is a kind of mythical sea monster that destroys ships and has been a staple in books and films for decades. More than 19 months after the NHL voted to give up the 32nd franchise of the Seattle League, the name and logo have been unveiled.

"Kraken is a miracle," said musician Steve Patrick, the grandson of the great Lester Patrick, co-founded 100 years ago by Seattle Metropolitics, Young Rising Sun, and the Camden Wells band.

Lester Patrick's image was included in the video used to unveil Kraken's name and logo on Thursday. He wore the Metropolitan jersey, the first American team to win the Stanley Cup.

Patrick said in a FaceTime interview from Brooklyn, New York, "I was watching a video and suddenly saw Lester pop up and I could spot that face anywhere." "So, it's like a quiet moment."

He said he liked the way the new team was able to capture the passion of the old team.

“It was really cool (and) it was so silly and there,” he said. "I think the approach (branding) they took on the 'S' of the actual metropolitans was great. It's really good. It's really awesome."

‘S’ is the main focus of the sweater that players will wear after cooking inside next year’s Climate Pledge Arena.

Others expressed different views about the team name and logo.

John Ellie said, "It's just such a Seattle. Misunderstanding (and) not enough in the league." "It works. I think they did what they wanted to do."

“I think there will be more tourism and more money coming to this area,” Eric Ribery said.

“I think it adds a lot to the city’s fabric,” Mark Burns said. "And I'm really, from that perspective, excited about it."

Patrick comes from a large hockey family. Since his uncle was the current team president for the Washington capitals, he said he was a hockey team and he would support it.

But he said the Seattle Kraken would definitely be his Western team.

“I have been to Seattle many times and the people there are excited about all things,” Patrick said. "They're great sports fans. It's a really good, special situation. I think hockey shows a good performance."
